Now I'm wondering if he is lying about catching me with radar because he reduced the speed amount by so much. $27 is not really a lot of money and I can pay it easily but If I can I would like to fight this so that I can keep my record spotless as it was up until now. Do you think it would be worth it and what are my chances of winning and/or the police officer not even showing up to court?
He did you a great favour probably because it was your first offence by reducing the ticket to 105. If you do take this to court the prosecutor has every right to raise the offence back to the original speed if noted by the officer and would be very risky for you to risk the increase in points and monetary fine.
Consider yourself lucky.
Just because it is 11:30pm at night does not mean you can't get a ticket for travelling above the posted speed limit.
In fact you're MORE likely in my opinion because you stick out like a sore thumb to any officer and it is easier to get a reading and easier to pull you over with less volume on the road.

5km over = 0 points
40km over = 4 ponts

I routinely do 100 down the 401 at night, and after 11:00 PM or so it's generally empty enough that you can do whatever speed you please and other cars have room to pass you. Even during the day, I've found the right-hand lane of the 401 to flow at 100-110 km/h outside of rush hour, because there is enough traffic volume and enough bad drivers to keep speeds down that low -- no such luck on the 400, though. Cars there either do 90 or 130 with poor me caught in the middle.setdin2 wrote:(this is on the 401 at 11:30pm where the minimum speed you will see is 120km/h on the road.
